10 curries for you to try - Kid friendly, mild, hot, slowcooker, pressure cooker or stove, vegetarian and not - have a peek!



Not everyone is a fan of a curry and others go mad for a curry but only a certain type.  Some think they could never make a curry unless they had a pre-made paste - some others think they take too long...

Here I'm making it easy for you - here's something if you like something mild, spicy, quick, vegetarian or put that pressure cooker or slow cooker to good use!  I'll also identify if it's kid-friendly or not...

Green chicken curry (and paste)
http://www.frillsinthehills.com/2011/08/how-to-make-your-own-green-curry-paste.html

How easy?  Quite easy!
Kid friendly? Not exactly, but I think you could tone it down with more coconut milk and less chili
Cooking method:  Wok or frypan
Adaptable?  Absolutely!  Make it with beef, chicken or even tofu!



Quickie pressure cooker curry

How easy?  Ridiculously easy!
Kid friendly? Yes, it's peanut-butter based though so not allergy friendly
Cooking method:  Pressure cooker
Adaptable?  Absolutely!  Make it with lamb, chicken or as this recipe, beef!  You could also cook it on the stove-top but you'll need to cook it for at least 3 hours.

Kid friendly? Kind of, depends on your kids, might be a bit spicy if they don't like spice.
